the Dentist (and quilts)


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A gingivectomy is a periodontal surgical procedure which includes the removal of gingival tissue in order to achieve a more aesthetic appearance and/or functional contour. Gingivectomies are frequently performed using electrosurgery to cauterize away the undesired gum tissue.

Yes, this is an uncomfortable procedure. This is from a wisdom tooth removed years ago - the gum was growing over the back molar. Now I have a big hole in my gum which will recontour itself. Ouch.

Quilting happening here: feather curl meander, panto on a Morning Out quilt, straight lines, cross hatching.
